What is Raider?
Raider is a chatbot that uses text messages and a knowledge base to answer your questions about MCSD and help your child succeed. You know how Siri and Alexa can answer lots of your questions? That’s basically how Raider works - except Raider only answers questions about Massena Central School District, not the current weather or nearest coffee shop. Raider sends timely reminders, information, and tips to help promote success in school. And Raider doesn’t speak, only texts.

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has developed a Parent Dashboard to increase transparency and make information about school performance and other school-level data easier for parents and the public to access. The Parent Dashboard is part of New York’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan, which emphasizes equity in education for all students and expands measures of school accountability and student success. This new dashboard will provide parents with information about their child’s school. The Parent Dashboard is now available in addition to the New York State School Report Card on NYSED’s public data site. The Parent Dashboard offers information on all public schools including charter schools.
The Massena Central School District has partnered with the Massena Salvation Army to provide internet access to some of the District’s highest needs families to support students learning remotely. The Massena Salvation Army received funding through an Alcoa grant that was used to purchase 20 internet hotspots called kajeets.
